Though concrete is typically used as an industrial building material for the foundations of edifices, this concrete credenza brings that strong stone blend into the home. Created by designer Alon Dodo, who's based out of Israel, the concrete credenza uses traditional craftsmanship techniques applied to many pieces of wood furniture, smoothly working those practices into the unique material.

All of Alon Dodo's furniture designs incorporate a technique called inlaying. This ancient practice is typical of woodwork, and it involves stamping wood into itself using butterfly or X-patch connectors. Implementing inlay techniques into the concrete credenza is a creative use of such a system.

Alon Dodo is no stranger to building furniture with uncommon materials. Aside from wood, Dodo's pieces are also made from leather, copper, brass, iron, korian, and marble.
